The handheld comes with the standard AC adapter, stylus, SD Card, AR Cards reports CinemaBlend.
The unit will be released tomorrow October 12.
Nintendo is likely not waiting to bundle the handheld with the game in hopes of building anticipation and selling units to diehard fans. Also, the game is already launching with the new 2DS, a cross between the DS and 3DS.
The 2DS will be $130.
The game comes out tomorrow as well, in a worldwide launch for the first time.
"Until now, the pattern has been to release games overseas a few months after the games have come out in Japan," said Pokemon's Tsunekazu Ishihara in an interview with Weekly Famitsu.
The game is always released first in Japan, and then comes over to the states and the rest of the world later. Now, with the world wide release, Nintendo feels everyone will appreciate the level playing field, and no one will be left behind.
